Aaarrrggghhh! All the superlatives fit. What a drag. This "fabulous" West Loop penthouse does indeed have ceilings that "soar" and a "breathtaking" private roof terrace. The "elegant" space is backed up by mahogany floors throughout, exposed brick, timber beams and columns, a stone shower, chef's kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, and direct-to-living room freight elevator service for that Manhattan loft feel. The three-bedroom unit totals 4,200 square feet. The asking price of $1.545M is almost $500K more than its 2005 sale price. Presumably, you're getting a different product in turn, though it might just be ballsy pricing. See, people are starting to hear things about a recovering market. It can be a dangerous knowledge.
